What Would Boxing Look Like With Dana White As A Promoter?

With the disgust of a father coming to terms with the disgraceful actions of his own children, UFC president Dana White addressed the media late Saturday in Las Vegas following a dark melee which stained the close of Khabib Nurmagomedov's victory over Conor McGregor. 

"I've been doing this for 18 years, and this is the biggest night ever, and I couldn't be more disappointed," White said. "You know me, I'm usually mad at everything. [Tonight] I'm not really mad, I'm just disappointed.

"This is still one of the biggest moments of my career, and I should feel a lot better right now than I do. We should be celebrating right now. I don't give a shit how many pay-per-views [buys] we have done right now. I don't care. I can tell you from the bottom of my heart it has been all I talked about all week, and now, I don't give a shit."

A week-long celebration of UFC 229 being the biggest card in mixed martial arts history -- with White extending his PPV buy prediction based upon internal numbers to an astounding 3.5 million -- ended with a dramatic and largely one-sided victory for Nurmagomedov in defense of his UFC lightweight title. 

But the repugnant brawl that followed, initiated by Nurmagomedov's leftover contempt for McGregor and his team following the most contentious build in UFC history, quickly turned T-Mobile Arena into an unsafe environment for fighters, personnel and fans alike.
